Louise Wallwein grew up in the care of nuns from the age of 9. GLUE is a frank and gripping true story of her first meetings with her birth mother, three decades after being put up for adoption. The world as she knew it was turned upside down, and this is how she learnt to fight. 

Born, transferred, placed, discharged, returned. 
What can we learn from a life in care?
